Pedro Alves da Silva (born 25 April 1981 in Brasília) is a Brazilian retired footballer who played as a right back.


Football career

During his early Brazilian career, Silva represented Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras, Figueirense Futebol Clube and Esporte Clube Vitória (the latter two on loan). In 2005, he was loaned to Sport Club Internacional, then had his first experience abroad with Portuguese club Académica de Coimbra.

In October 2006, Silva was signed by Iraty Sport Club, with his rights being de facto controlled by an investment company. He was subsequently loaned to Santos FC and Sport Club Corinthians Paulista.

Moving abroad again, Silva joined another Portuguese side, Sporting Clube de Portugal, for €350,000. Severely injured in his first season, he eventually won the battle for first-choice status with veteran Abel, midway through 2008–09, with both sharing duties in the following campaign.

On 21 March 2009, Silva started in the final of the Portuguese League Cup against Lisbon neighbours S.L. Benfica (1–1 after 120 minutes). In the 72nd minute of the game, a controversial penalty kick was awarded and he was sent off for a second bookable offense; after the eventual penalty shootout loss, the player refused to hang up his runner-up medal, throwing it onto the pitch immediately.

In August 2009, Sporting acquired the remaining 50% of Silva's rights from Iraty by selling Rodrigo Tiuí's 50% to the investment group. On 30 August 2010, after being second or third-choice in 2009–10, he was loaned to Portimonense SC.

Silva's contract with Sporting was terminated in late 2011. On 10 December, he returned to his country and joined lowly Esporte Clube Novo Hamburgo.
